Ever wonder what to do with your trailer safety chains, trailer emergency brake cable, and electrical connector when your trailer isn't hooked up to your tow vehicle? Hate to see these items just lying on the ground? Well if you are anything like Camp Addict co-founder Marshall, trying to find a good place to store these items drives you insane! (Camp Addict co-founder Kelly could care less about these details. 😂)
We highly recommend getting yourself an electric trailer jack. Marshall has always had one on his Lance, and Kelly just recently got our #1 recommended Husky electric jack after almost three years living with a manual jack, and she couldn't be happier. For Kelly, it was one of those "Why didn't I do this a long time ago" reactions. Oh well, nothing like living in the present and not bitching a fit every time you have to hook up! No more worries about Kelly's back going out because of her jack. Her back is jacked, but her back won't go out due to a jack. Something like that.
Ball Screw Drive MechanismThe ball screw drive uses ball bearings (rotational friction) that offers superior performance over metal-on-metal gear mechanisms (sliding friction) used by other manufacturers. Ball screw drives use less power, have better lifting capability, provide quieter operation, and offer additional benefits.Ball Screw Drive Mechanism

Back up your vehicle to the coupler of your hitch. Center the ball directly under the coupler (duh, right?). Lower your jack down so that the coupler connects with the ball and you raise up the jack up until it can't go up any more. (Don't raise jack all the way up yet if you have a weight distribution hitch that requires you to lift the hitch as well as the back of the tow vehicle.)
According to the information I was able to find, the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack you referenced, part # UF38-944016 would be a good choice for the Keystone Outback Toy Hauler you mentioned. The jack has a 3500 lb lift capacity, which is plenty for the listed tongue weight of the toy hauler, plus anything stowed on it. Among the many features of this jack, I like the fact that is uses LED lamps for long life as well as the fact that a 9/16 inch socket wrench can be used in an emergency...
